Ricardo, a leading environmental, engineering and strategic consulting company, has won a contract with STX Engine to develop a ‘clean sheet’ engine for use in heavy-duty military vehicles.

The South Korean government has announced its intention to produce locally a new engine for the K9 platform. Ricardo has been contracted to support STX Engine – an engine maker for the global defence industry that is headquartered in South Korea — to design and develop a new competitive engine that achieves the required performance and attributes for the K9 vehicle for future export projects. For the project, Ricardo will use its expertise in simulation and analysis to optimise product design and component selection, along with its manufacturing expertise.

Teri Hawksworth, president of Ricardo Automotive and Industrial EMEA said: “We are delighted to have won this contract to support STX Engine, continuing our long and successful working relationship. We are proud that our engineers’ considerable expertise in engine development will help to deliver a best-in-class product that will help to drive performance and efficiency targets.”
